Interested in a career in the cannabis industry? If you live in the San Diego area, you’ll get your chance to snag your dream job by attending the Cannabis Career Fair on October 29, 2022 (details/website). On this episode of Cannabis Enlightened, Dr. Leroy interviews Barry Herzberg, founder of the Cannabis Career Fair and self-proclaimed “OG” in the cannabis industry. 

Barry is considered an “OG” because he had a dispensary during the old Prop 215 days, when only medical marijuana cooperatives were legal. If you lived in San Diego in the early 2010’s you may have frequented his dab bar on Cass Street. 

From this dab bar, Barry and Dr. Leroy talks about the development of dosing, the battles between dispensaries and law enforcement, the “backdoor” cannabis market, and how COVID killed the Cannabis Farmers Market before he and his business partner, Joshua Caruso, brought some new life to an old idea: a career fair.    

Barry and Jashua are hosting the Cannabis Career Fair will be held at the Sheraton Four Points on Aero Drive on October 29, 2022. To get more information regarding the career fair or other events, reach out via email:  [email protected]
